“Each of the past 5 years I have called incredible, but 2018 has really had an incredible impact on my life. I’ve been blessed throughout the years and this year is no exception. This year many can see and kinda get a glimpse of my works, projects, and recognitions by viewing my recent awards. I gladly share my joy and outlook. Incredible cannot fully describe, ” shares Jason Irby.

“These ladies are two dynamic women of Arkansas history. We had wonderful presentations and discussion ranging from their family history to their roles in Arkansas culture, politics, and history. The audience this year was small and intimate and I wish many more people would’ve been here to participate and enjoy this occasion,” said Irby.
The event will be located at 217 Main Street, Pine Bluff, Arkansas, beginning at 2:00 p.m. This year’s theme is “Awareness, Wellness, and Choices” focusing on violence prevention, resolutions, and contributions of the community.
